RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Richard Sherman doesn’t believe in video game curses.

The Seattle Seahawks’ All-Pro cornerback will have his image plastered on the front of the next version of EA Sports’ popular “Madden” football game. It’s an honor that’s allegedly been fraught with peril for some past recipients who have either had subpar seasons or suffered injuries the year they were on the cover.

Despite the notoriety that has come with winning an online vote to be on the cover, along with numerous other endorsements this offseason and a new contract extension, Sherman has remained committed to the Seahawks’ offseason program. Seattle coach Pete Carroll noted Monday that Sherman has missed “maybe a day” of the voluntary offseason program.
